. but none of the largest deals that were done during that period in the united states have gone bankrupt. if you take the 20 largest deals done in a bubble period, so-called, none of them have filed for bankruptcy. some of them have problems, but actually, they're being re structured and i think many of them will get good returns for their invest everies. >> is 2010 the year that private equity can build up and roll them back out? >> you'll see a lot of ipos this year. but he'll see a lot of strategic sales, sales of company to strategic buyers because they're back in the market, as well. and financial buyers will buy things from other financial buyers. so i think you'll see a fair amount of buying activity this year. >> joe is in the studio and he has a question, too. >> i love the general fighting the last war, david. that's so apt. and i can mention about five really well known pundits that are fienting the last war. and none of them actually make investments or run private equity firms, which it's easy to be that way if you actually don't have to, you know, be involved in the economy

of the united states government but still eight years after 9/11, the dots weren't connected. the puzzle pieces were there, but the intelligence agencies failed to put that puzzle together. that is what really has made the president angry and the reason he wants to see some changes. >> savannah, while you were talking we saw an aide from the white house press office bring the binder with the president's planned remarks out to the lectern. here comes the president through the center entrance of the blue room of the white house. >> good afternoon, everybody. i just concluded a meeting with members of my national security team including those from our intelligence, homeland security and law enforcement agencies involved in the security reviews that i ordered after the failed attack on christmas day. i called these leaders to the white house because we face a challenge of the utmost urgency. as we saw on christmas, al qaeda and its extremist allies will stop at nothing in their efforts to kill americans. were determined not only to thwart those plans but to disrupt, dismantle and defeat their nedwo

time we can do it here in the united states. >> bruce, you're going so far as to say we could go back to pre-9/11 security. >> i am. airline security at airport is is the last line of defense and it's notç a good one. it's only effective if you guess the plot correctly. think about it, pre-9/11 screening foiled the christmas day plot. because we screen for guns and bombs the bomber or the bomb builder had to resort to inefficient using mechanism. he couldn't use a timer or plunge or any regular fuse, he had to built something with i syringe and 20 minutes in the bathroom and liquids and chemicals and something in his lap and we don't know what, that failed. everything else is only effective if you guess right. if the guy uses liquids, then you're right, if he doesn't, you're wrong. i'd rather not invest in security that just has the terrorist change his tactics or target but invest in security that stops them completely. >> what you're saying, metal detectors are still the traditional way that we have now. do we need to move to something that could, for example, detect whatever it w

of like everyone is talking about how the united states is slow. you made a very, very pointed comment in your conference call which just finished where you talked about that the u.s. is actually getting stronger. how can you explain the disconnect between what i heard last night in the president's state of the union about how things aren't so strong and all the doom and gloomsteres and your u.s. business is picking up here? >> jim, i think one thing is that technology is leading this recovery. and i don't think that's been true since the tech bubble burst back at the beginning of last decade. so i think there's pent-up demand for technology and we're seeing it. our i.t. business in america grew by double digits on a year on year basis. >> that's why i like tech and i'm going to keep pushing it. roy vallee, great to have you on here. you do have the pulse on this whole industry. thanks so much. those of you crying in your beer about qualcomm thinking it's all over, mr. vallee has a better handle on it than qualcomm who has no handle on it at all. i feel better. technology is leading us

[ gunfire ] that aren't hiring, their profits should be garnished if they're not helping the costs. but this is not a political show. if you own shares in a company, you must hope that the company is doing everything it can to take its business overseas. and you're not thinking of adding anyone here, because it's too expensive. and not productive enough. in fact, it's worse. companies based in america have realized that it pays to fire, not hire. fire, not fihire. don't believe me? look at u.p.s., which i learned from my charitable trust. the stom jumped 2.5 cents today after being up since last friday. why a second-day rally? i think you have a second-day rally because it shows the company

in the united states and the earnings of the big companies that are about to report. in fact, i regard it as an inverse correlation. the more they fire here, the more money they make. and the hirer their stock goes. given that business is so bad in this country and better almost everywhere else, i believe companies will be penalized with lower stock prices if they hire here and will rally if they hire overseas where the growth is. what matters during earning season is less earnings, and right now joblessness equals profits. it's a fact. when it comes to this kind of thing, getting political, making judgments whether it's the congress' fault for making things so darn confusing and difficult for small business, or whether it's the rich moneybag bankers that shouldn't make their pay, maybe they're the problem. all of those things just obscure what we need to think about as investors, which is how much money companies are making from not hiring people. case in point, caterpillar. see that one today? stock folded $3.79. it was a stunning move. a stunning move. talk about a company that's la
